Dicks Sporting Goods destroys $5m in guns

Slate reports:

In an interview with CBS News on Sunday, Dick’s Sporting Goods CEO Ed Stack revealed that his company had destroyed about $5 million worth of the semi-automatic rifles in its inventory. Stack made the decision to remove all military-style weapons from the company’s stores in response to the 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Rather than returning the guns to their manufacturers, Stack opted to reduce them to scrap metal.

    $5m calculated using MSRP or wholesale cost? Big difference. Please define which.
